Jeon Jemin, ed Kevin O’Rourke: Korean Stories

Jeon Jemin, ed Kevin O’Rourke: Korean Stories(Eul & Al, 2004)


A strange collection. Confucian stories, Buddhist stories, and some essays which though brief remind you of the disjointed ramblings of a genial but slightly senile grandfather. One of the essays does explain, though, why the bedwetting boy in one of the short films in the collection If you were me is made to go round his neighbours asking for salt. A good bedside book because everything’s so short.
